Putting the fun back into driving, the new Volkswagen up! GTI has a seriously punchy performance and a raft of athletic features to turn heads. This sporty supermini is now available to test drive from Drift Bridge Volkswagen.
All eyes will be drawn to the up! GTI thanks to its sporty stripes, wide grille and unique alloy wheels, compete with bright red brake callipers. It’s the same from the rear angle, with the back sporting a black diffuser, a chrome tailpipe and spoiler to make sure it exudes sportiness. There’s also a contrasting roof and dark tinted rear windows for extra personality. A small supermini with three doors (or five if you prefer), it’s easy for getting around the city in style.
Thanks to its compact size and low-slung position, you’ll feel connected to the road as you drive the up! GTI. Like an extension of the head-turning exterior, it feels intrinsically sporty inside with sports seats, ambient lighting and a flat-bottomed steering wheel. To enjoy the full GTI experience, choose a vivid metallic colour for the dash and tartan ‘Jacara’ print for the upholstery. It’s a four-seater, so friends can enjoy the ride with you.
You should never underestimate the Volkswagen up! GTI. Its performance is impressive and enjoyable in equal measure. Boasting twice as much power as the entry-level, it packs a decent 113bhp from its three-cylinder engine. With a top speed of 126mph and a 0-60mph time of less than nine seconds, it is one of the fastest cars in its class. As a lightweight car, you can really feel the force of this lively engine, and the stiffened suspension ensures it responds directly to the road. The small turning circle also makes it easy to navigate those tight streets.
Packed with infotainment to ensure you’re always connected, you’ll enjoy every journey in the up! GTI. You can attach your smartphone to a dock, making it easy to use apps while you’re driving. It’s particularly helpful if you like to follow sat nav apps while driving. It also means that listening to playlists is a breeze, and you can make the most of your music by adding a beats by Dr Dre sound system. Bluetooth lets you take calls while on the move, and for comfort, there’s a climatronic air conditioning system that maintains an ideal temperature.
It doesn’t forget its sensible side, though. Stability control will keep you on a steady course as you curve around corners, and an anti-lock braking system prevents skidding. It also has a tyre pressure loss indicator to let you know if you need to visit the air pump. If you want a hand parking, there’s an optional rear-view camera.
